Both Google Photos and Flickr allows you to automatically upload your photos and videos via desktop uploader or mobile apps to your account. Using a cloud storage is an important to have a reliable and easy service to backup and download your photos and videos when needed.
Google Photos has a desktop uploader which allows you to automatically upload photos and videos from external device, choose between standard and full photo resolution, upload RAW files and much more. The Google Photos mobile app has features like auto grouping photos by facial recognition, removing your geolocation from photos that you share and selecting specific folders on your mobile phone to backup. If you want to download all of your photos from Google Photos, then you can use Google Takeout and get a zipped file of all your photo albums. If you have Google Drive syncing on your computer, then you can easily access your photos on computer.
Flickr also has a desktop uploader, but it has very basic features. Just you can select the folders that you want and upload them to your account. If you are using Flickr mobile app, then you have two options to use "Wi-Fi only" or "Cellular/Wi-Fi". If you want to download photos from Flickr account, then you have the option to download an individual albums as a zipped file. It does not have "Download All" option. But, selecting multiple photos on Flickr that it is on Google Photos is much easier and it lacks "Select All" feature.
So, Google Photos is a much faster and easier option as compare to Flickr for uploading photos and videos, downloading them on your computer at once.
